Wrong instructions wound up breaking the frame thanks sooooooo much you don't need to remove the ribbons if you do you wind up breaking them and from there on I have no idea what the !&&* is going on

I just replaced the screen on my AWE with this guide. There are 3 ribbon cables to remove,

you have to open a flap to remove cable ( google it , if your not sure )

The reason you remove motherboard is for the ribbon cable on the screen , it passes under

neath.

Pry the screen as shown all around the phone, its glued on. Be careful you dont go too far

under ( I scratched the digitizer underneath )

Not that hard, just go slow. Fixed for 10 dollars vs 60 for new one.
